I tried non Epson cartridges T0711 etc and wasn't imppressed one little bit. One wasn't recognised ( yellow ) seemed to lock everything up. The printer kept saying non genuine cartridge fitted (just the yellow even though they were a set) and refused to work. In the end I went back to using Jettec's. Never had a problem with those. The first non originals I tried were "WOX", the second lot were unbranded, green boxes with no real name anywhere. Never again !!
